IPL 2018: Sunrisers Hyderabad

Warner had been in top 5 in the last four seasons of IPL. He is the orange cap winner of 2015, 2107 editions of IPL. He is second to Virat Kohli in top scorers list of IPL 2016. He lead Sun risers Hyderabad to title victory in 2016. Now David Warner is not available for IPl 2018. Can the vacuum created by his absence can be filled. Can Williamson emulate what David Warner has done to Sunrisers hyd ? Can he consistently lead Sunrisers….

Can Hyderabad manage without David Warner?

CA ban on Warner has done lot of damage to Sun risers Hyderabad. He scored 641 in yesteryear edition of IPL with an average of 45 runs per game. But he was banned just before 10 days from start of IPL.  Williamson ,who couldn’t find space in last year IPl, will lead this year edition of IPL.  Alex Hales has been announced as the replacement for David Warner. We have to wait and see how far Alex hales can do justice to Warner role. This is a major  opportunity for Alex Hales, who was unsold in previous auctions of IPL. He was unsold even when he was world’s number one in ICC t20 rankings.

Sunrisers Hyderabad is reliant highly on Bhuvaneswar Kumar as much they were reliant on Warner in Batting. Hales will definately come as opener in place of Warner. Shikhar Dhwan will be once again Key to Sunrisers batting.. He scored449 runs in Last year’s IPL. Goof for Sunrisers Hyderabad that Shikhar Dhawan is in form  when he played in South Africa.Middle Order is also strong with Yusuf Patan, Deepak Hooda, Wridhiman Saha.

Cricinfo Predictions

  • Sunrisers not reach playoffs.
  • Rashid Khan to be leading wicket taker.
